Canada and theForests

Canada's boreal forest is the largest contiguous intact forest left on Earth and the second largest frontier forest. It covers 35 percent of the country's land area and is home to the world's largest caribou herd, the second -highest wolf population, and polar, black and grizzly bears. About three billion birds nest there each year. (Source: David Suzuki Foundation)
